What do you get when you pluck one of TV’s funniest ladies out of The Office and drop her in The Hospital? A version of workwear that’s uniquely Mindy. InStyle.com caught up with Kaling at Fox’s TCA party, where she spilled fashion secrets from the set of her show, The Mindy Project, in which the hilarious actress plays an ob-gyn. “I don’t want [my character] to be the doctor version of me—me just wearing scrubs,” Kaling told us. Together with costume designer Michelle Perez, the star developed an on-screen look she describes as “a mod ’60s style of dressing for work.” Click through for some of our favorite fashion moments (plus more from Mindy!) and tune in tonight for an all-new episode of The Mindy Project at 9:30 p.m. EST on Fox.
